The month of November having been generally mild, a great deal of wheat was sown on fallows and bean-lands in excellent order ; the pastures were still fresh, growing, and abundant; turnips continued to improve, and the plough moved forward without interruption. The labours of the season are accordingly in a forward state, notwithstanding the lateness of the harvest. What part of the crop remained on the field at the date of our last report, has been secured in a better condition than could be then expected. Within these few days there has been a keen frost, which is now succeeded by moderate rains. Of the abundance or quality of the last crop, little remains to be added to what we have stated formerly. The dampness, and otherwise inferior description of what has hitherto been brought to market, is not, however, we hope, a fair criterion by which to judge of the whole produce; for, besides the lateness of the harvest, it is well known to be the practice of farmers, except in the instance of wheat for seed, to dispose of the inferior part of the crop first, and, unfortunately, this bears too large a proportion to the whole this season. The prices throughout November rose gradually, but hare lately become stationary. On the 15th, the ports were closed against all foreign grain, flour, and meal, barley excepted, but still continue open to importation from the British colonies in North America ; a circumstance which does not appear to have had any effect on the market. In live stock, for which the great markets of the season are now past, there has been a considerable fluctuation during the last three months, and the reports are somewhat different from distant quarters ; but, upon the whole, it would appear that the prices of the early part of that period have not been supported at its con. clusion, though the medium rates are certainly higher than last year. No material al. teration can be noted in the price of butcher meat, which, in this market, still fetches from 6s. to 7s. per stone, of 174 Ib. avoirdupois. The failure of Hops, the price of which is now quoted so high as L. 34 a pocket, is said to have brought an immense profit to a few growers in Kent, whose crops happened to be almost exclusively fine ; one of them is reported to have realized a fortune of not less than L. 90,000 from the produce of the present ycar. In consequence of the scarcity and high price of this article, it had been proposed to admit foreign hops free of duty, but this measure does not seem to have met with the approbation of government. Seeds are at advanced prices :-Canary 86s. to 100s.; hemp-seed 9os. to 105s. ; linseed 56s. to 90s. per quarter ; new rape-seed, per last, L. 54 to L. 56 ; linseed oil-cake at the mill, L. 15 per thousand, of 3 libs. each; rape-cake L. 12 per ditto of ditto; clover-seed is expected to be high, the produce of this year having been little better than that of last ; red is now quoted at from 40s. to 105s., and white from 50s. to 108s.

COMMERCIAL REPORT.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugars. The market still continues dull, with little variation in prices; but as it is now thought that Muscovadoes have declined to moderate prices, an improved demand is expected. Refined goods have experienced a decline of about 4s. in the course of the month. In foreign there has scarcely been any business done. Coffee.---The demand has been confined ; holders, however, evince much firmness, and will not submit to any reduction of prices. Cotton.-An unusual number of buyers attended the sale at the India-house, which was very brisk ; 4491 bags Surats were disposed of, at and after the sale, at a reduction of Id. to 14d. per lb. of the top prices of the former sale; of 5812 Bengals, 3375 were sold about 0fd. per lb. above the prices previously expected; the lower qualities were taken in by the proprietors, about 10d. ; the whole subject to a duty of ld. per lb. if taken for home consumption. Rum.—About the middle of November, in consequence of a report that the French government had agreed to admit rum for the use of the allied armies, there were extensive transactions, and the article rose 6d. to Is. per gallon. The question of its admission into France being yet, however, unsettled, the market has become heavy, and prices have fallen a little. Spices.-Since the East India sale, there has been little variation in prices, but generally the market is improving. Tobacco.-Holders evince a great desire to effect sales, but the demand is not extensive. Marylands are a shade higher ; for cargoes, 678. and 68s. are asked. Virginia, in cargoes, 5ðs. and 66s. Kentucky, 48s. to 56s. Oil.-The prices have declined since our last, and there is at present scarcely any business doing.

EUROPEAN PRODUCE.--Hemp, Flax, and Tallow.. T'he prices of yellow candle tal. low, which lad declined to 66s. have again advanced; but there is not as much briskness as towards the close of last week. Hemp and flax are in demand, and prices have considerably advanced. Brandy and Geneva.-Brandy continues to risc, on account of the scarcity. Geneva is 3d. to 6d. per gallon higher.

British Manufactures are in full life and activity. Accounts from Boston state, that Manchester goods were selling there at very good prices, and the market for them was quick. The German papers, however, giving an account of Leipsic fair, state, that Eng. lish manufactures were offered at such high prices, that domestic articles were bought in preference. The English merchants (they observe) only sell at low prices when they wish to get rid of damaged or old-fashioned articles.-Dec: 2.
